Pennsylvania Horticultural Society Presents “Pheast,” A Festive Night Out Celebrating Chefs And Growers, Friday, October 19
The Pennsylvania Horticultural Society will be tipping its hat to Philadelphia’s fresh local food and the people who grow and prepare it at a special event at the Philadelphia Navy Yard on Friday, October 19.
Pheast will feature tons of local restaurants and chefs that work in collaboration with farms in the area such as A Full Plate Café, Talula’s Garden, Lacroix, Russet, the Vetri Foundation and many, many more.
The event will benefit PHS’s City Harvest program which helps feed more than 1,000 families a week, so the $150 entry fee is well worth it — not to mention the opportunity to chat with celebrity chefs, local farmers and growers all while enjoying the delicious smorgasbord of tastings they will be offering.
You can also get a special moonlight tour of the Navy Yard, catch some live music, warm up by the outdoor fire pits and get in on some raffles and promotions.
Locals farm partners include Agatston UNI (Urban Nutrition Initiative), Airport Garden, Farm 51, Weavers Way Co-Op and W.B. Saul, Marathon Farm, Teens4Good and more.
Get the VIP ticket for $300 and have a private tasting with a local chef, lounge in the VIP area, take home a fancy swag bag and, the best part, give an even more generous donation to City Harvest.
Tickets are available online.
